Fedora 11 With ati? Ati 4800s?

I tried the RC but the catalyst drivers would not work.

Does this release have beta 9.6 drivers or do we just have to wait?

I have the HD4870 and HD4670 on two different rigs, both Fedora 11, both upgraded via PreUpgrade from Fedora 10. I'm using the "radeonhd" drivers, here's my Xorg.conf for the 4670 (configuration is pretty much the same, apart from resolution of the primary display - 1680x1050):

Code:
[craig@khashoggi ~]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display

Section "Files"
	ModulePath   "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
	Option	    "AIGLX" "on"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Left"
	ModeLine     "1280x1024_60.00" 108.9 1280 1360 1496 1712 1024 1025 1028 1060 -hsync +vsync
	Option	    "PreferredMode" "1280x1024_60.00"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Right"
	ModeLine     "1280x1024_60.00" 108.9 1280 1360 1496 1712 1024 1025 1028 1060 -hsync +vsync
	Option	    "RightOf" "Left"
	Option	    "PreferredMode" "1280x1024_60.00"
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "HD4670"

	Option	    "monitor-DVI-I_1/digital" "Left"
	Option	    "monitor-DVI-I_2/digital" "Right"
	Option	    "RROutputOrder" "Left"
	BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen"
	Device     "HD4670"
	DefaultDepth     24

	EndSubSection
EndSection

Hope that helps. It's worth noting that you can't have Compiz (at least with Xinerama/dual-display setups).

The Fedora 11 rc worked out of the box on my HD4870 with the open-source radeon driver. I found it very stable, but does not have 3d support so far. If you need 3d on newer cards you'll probably have to wait for Catalyst 9.6. I swapped mine for and old X1800, runs Compiz fine @1920x1200 and cooler/quieter as well.

Ok thanks for the replys. Why cant you use dual displays with compiz?

I think it's something to do with the maximum screen size for Compiz, all I really know is that I was researching it when I was getting my 4870 to work, but it didn't bother me at the time so I didn't really pay that much attention to it. Try Googling "RadeonHD Xinerama Compiz" and see what you come up with

As far as I know the current ATi Drivers will not build on 2.6.29, I haven't tried it on any 2.6.29 installs yet so I can't confirm it. Though it does work on Mandriva, but that's their custom version of the driver so I can't take that as proof that it should work.
